As an administrator, I'd like RPM repository syncs from mirrorlists to be able to use multiple mirrors in the event of download failures

Description

Currently, though Pulp3 supports mirror lists, it does not currently support re-trying against a different host in the mirror list in the event of a package sync failure.

While attempting to use mirror lists while syncing fedora34 updates, after ~15 attempts I was not able to get to version 1 of the repository, as each time it would try and it would get a new mirror, and there would be a failed package of some kind.

Anecdotally I see this a lot when running a dnf update/upgrade where packages will fail and DNF will happily go off and try a new mirror, without this logic, for larger repositories that may have a lot of change, I'm unsure of the value of supporting mirror lists.

You're definitely right about this being a good feature to support. It will be complex enough that I'm not sure how soon we can get to it though. Definitely not in the next two months, possibly Q1 2022.
